Banana-Apple Bread

2 large ripe bananas
2 peeled and grated apples
1 cup sugar
1 egg
4 tbsp Crisco shortening (you can use 4 tbsp unsalted butter, taste will be slightly different)
1 1/2 tsp water
1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon powder
1/2 tsp nutmeg powder
Sliced almonds for topping

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly grease a 9 x 5 inch loaf pan. In a bowl mash bananas. Beat in sugar, egg and crisco. Add flour and baking soda to the mixture and blend at medium speed just until all flour is moistened. Add apples; stir just until well mixed. Pour batter into prepared pan. Sprinkle sliced almonds evenly over batter. Bake for 55 to 60 minutes or until the toothpick inserted comes out clean. The bread tastes warm better..
